Buseh (nursing and public health, U. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) went abroad to study nursing and public health in order to help people in his native Liberia, but by the time he was qualified, civil war had broken out in the west African country, and health care workers were among the intellectuals being assassinated. He remained in the US. Here he combines the insights from his specialized study of the organization, financing, and delivery of health care in developed and developing countries, with his knowledge of Liberia to suggest how to proceed in the aftermath of the conflict.
